Mama Matata and her team of doctors picked up the ultrasound machine for the maternity department of Rhein Valley Hospital in Mombasa.
For us, a visit to the Thugunui waterworks was of course essential during our stay here in the Rift Valley.
With her "Liseli" (Landrover), which Ruth Schäfer had previously repaired with her own hands in her home, we drove up to the hospital in the mountains of Kasambara-Gilgil with excitement and mixed feelings.
This is a 2nd report from Corinne Jeker, who is currently working at Rhein-Valley Hospital: Time flies and it so happens that I have already been working at the hospital for more than two months. I am still fascinated and every day is an experience.
"I have been visiting with Ruth Schäfer for almost a month! With great excitement, we went to the hospital my first week!" says Corinne Jeker.
When I came to the hospital this morning, there were already some women with their babies in the waiting room. The children are vaccinated against rubella.
A very rainy day. Fundi took the opportunity to paint the birthing bed.
We haven't had a day like this in a long time. Many of the patients were diagnosed with malaria; some even had to be treated as inpatients.
Again, a group of 17 women can be stopped. Enormous numbers of young women between the ages of 25 and 30, with an average of 4 children already, are choosing to plan their families.
Despite pouring rain that led to major flooding in many places, many mothers with their babies arrived somewhat late for the checkup today.
